Ingwaz Frea was the Anglo-Saxon version of the Norse god Frey. His name is preserved in the Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem and many place names. It is known from Norse accounts that his image was taken from place to place during his holy tide, and it was a time of great celebration

The modern English is followed by the Anglo-Saxon version.

Ing Frea Festival Day Prayer

I bow to you ---Vanir's leader,
song and boast--- I sing to you,
Ing Froda--- Frey almighty,
through fields ---fared yo wain,
in olden days ---frith fullfilled,
children leaped--- through flowers,
and lovers---laid in meadows,
as earls sang ---seated at symble,
queens spoke---pleasing words.
summer draws on---plows in the field,
just as the ancestors--- in days of old,
today we---place faith in you,
worship you ---Vanir king,
the sir's protector---almighty Frey.
Wassail--- World's god,
Wassail Frey--- in your embrace Gerd grows,
bright blooming ---with child,
Vanir child--- the World's blooming.
bless Us--- eternal,
happy children ---Ing Frey!
